The newly-promoted Canaries were also reported to have made a second attempt to sign Millwall striker Steve Morison.

Vaughan, a product of Everton�s youth academy, has also been linked with Celtic and Derby.

Morison, meanwhile, has submitted a formal transfer request at Millwall, which the club have rejected.
